Naked and unashamed workshop
In the first recorded marriage, Adam and Eve “were both naked, and they felt no shame.” (Genesis 2:25)
Being naked and feeling unashamed was not merely about the absence of clothing. Rather it pointed to the depth of emotional intimacy that Adam and Eve shared with each other and God. In their “nakedness,” they experienced complete freedom from all fears. Their relationship embodied acceptance, safety, and trust – qualities many couples desire but few enjoy.
Speakers (Alice Kim, LCSW and Reverend Sam Kim) share from biblical reflections, clinical and pastoral experience (from working with couples) and personal lessons from their own marriage. This workshop is grounded in the biblical foundation for marriage as the framework for growing intimacy. Furthermore, Alice and Sam apply practical principles and implications to your current relationship.
“Refreshing. Practical. You had my attention the entire time.”
“This relationship conference is by far one of the most dynamic and educational experience I have seen at any of the churches and Christian groups. Both Sam and Alice have in-depth understanding of the Bible and was able to apply the principles to our everyday life.”
“We loved and needed a perspective from both parties/genders. …your vulnerability, scriptural explanations, stories, and humorous moments were a gift to me.”
“Thanks Sam and Alice! What a blessing! God really moves through you both as a dynamic duo. … There were some messages that were incredibly timely and challenging and I think that God will only use this as a catalyst for continual growth.”
“This workshop has exceeded my expectations in every way. You are both so genuine and bold. Your stories mean so much and resonate deeply. The spiritual content is woven throughout and not just “Jesusfide.” Because of your vulnerability, I am challenged, even convicted to be more genuine in my marriage.”
"The sex story was a great part of this workshop and one that I've never experienced."
"The anatomy of shame was very memorable. The presence of shame in my soul created a wedge with my wife. Isolation and deflection were exactly how I dealt with it."
“The anatomy of shame was helpful, as often times you may not even realize or be able to recognize when you feel shame. Provides a good reference to identify shame.”
“Allowed us to be honest with one another and talk about things we always were ashamed to talk about.”
"After 5 years of zipping through marriage it turned out we forgot to work on our relationship.... My hopes and expectations were met since now we have have somewhere to begin in rebuilding our marriage."
“It really hit home for me when “shame” and “forgiveness” was mentioned.”
“The most memorable lesson I learned was how to create intimacy with openness.”
“I would recommend [the workshop] because it really brings real life situations to life. Very relevant to struggles we are all facing.”
